How We Can Help
We work individually with each family to understand their specific needs
What Our Clients Are Saying
“Diane and her team (particularly Lidia Saavedra) were an unmeasurable help when my 15 y.o. child was experiencing severe physiological stress which was causing dire consequences for her school life. Negotiating PPS’s process alone seemed confusing, and more or less opaque, which is a terrible place to be with one’s child’s welfare in the balance. With the help of Diane and her team, we were able to put together a plan for my child that was extremely helpful at a very difficult time. The legal support was thorough, detailed, understandable and effective. The advocacy was assertive and confident, but never confrontational. I recommend these folks strongly. And my child is doing well now I am relieved to add.”
Diane gets things done
“We first hired Diane to work with the school district for a compromise accommodation to enable our daughter’s service dog to attend school with her. We hired her for her reputation of working with the district, and not in a confrontational manner. She worked to cut through bureaucracy and made it happen. She continues to make things happen whether we have needed to switch school/placement for my daughter, or get a reduced hour day with busing. I cannot recommend her more highly.”
“I would like to thank you for all your help this year. He has made tremendous progress this year. Although there is still work to be done, the school situation is 100% better than it was when I met you. I am not sure where we would be if I had not met you.”
“I just wanted to send you a quick note letting you know that our son is graduating from high school tonight. A couple of years ago I thought that this would have been impossible, that is until we met you. Thank you for all of the work you do for families like ours.”
“Just wanted to thank you for the attorney referral for my son. As a result, his legal situation ended a bit better than it could have been, and in time he will be able to rebuild his life and start on a new path. Once again, thank you so much! You were my guardian angel that day, and I don’t know what I would have done without you!”
Wiscarson Law helped through a Due Process Complaint and beyond. With their help we were able to get my son the placement that he needed all along. They continued to help us ensure that the placement was the correct one for him and that his needs were being met. They were always available to answer all of our questions during and after the process. I would highly recommend Wiscarson Law.
